4.0 out of 5 stars Top Marks for making the book readable funny and enjoyable
Top Marks for making the book readable funny and enjoyable. Reading a dull book always makes learning harder. One down side is they make some wild claims about where 3D printing will lead us. Some of them are great ideas and if they did them it would be great. Others are well out there with Capt Kirk and friends. The technical information and the tips are great and...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but ...
I'm interested in 3D printing for making things for my research lab. The early chapters in this book are every enthusiastic but perhaps a little bit O.T.T. For instance the idea that we'll all be printing burgers and that this will remove the need for animals is a bit daft, to be perfectly frank. Likewise the idea that the poorest of the poor in Africa's murkier corners...

I'm interested in 3D printing for making things for my research lab. The early chapters in this book are every enthusiastic but perhaps a little bit O.T.T. For instance the idea that we'll all be printing burgers and that this will remove the need for animals is a bit daft, to be perfectly frank. Likewise the idea that the poorest of the poor in Africa's murkier corners will whip out a 3D printer and build themselves a shelter is a bit loony. The later chapters on building a 3D printer were very helpful. So overall, a handy book for a noob like me but quite a lot of hot air in the earlier parts of the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars 'Patchy' and 'Uneven' and that is just the book!, 25 Nov. 2014
This review is from: 3D Printing For Dummies (Paperback)
A better title might be "How To Build A 3D Printer". This book has a split personality. It covers the basic idea of 3D printing and then launches into a blow by blow account of building a printer. I find it curious with so many models available that a book aimed at 'Dummies' describes building a printer. Back in the day I don't recall anyone suggesting that you build your own a) Dot matrix printer b) Laser printer or c) Ink jet printer.

Top Marks for making the book readable funny and enjoyable. Reading a dull book always makes learning harder. One down side is they make some wild claims about where 3D printing will lead us.

Over all a must read for people thinking about 3D printing,

3.0 out of 5 stars Not so much about 3D printing, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A lot of words, could probably have had 33% less pages. Only the last few chapters on how to build and run a 3D printer.
